Info, Tip, Note, and Warning Macros

Add an Info, Tip, Note, or Warning macro to your page to make important information stand out. The macro is used to format your text in a colored panel. 

As the names suggest, these macros are great for:

  • Tips and tricks
  • Warnings
  • Important notes and other info.

You can configure this macro with or without the icon and title.
